AMBER – is one of the the organic gemstones, being the time-hardened fossilized resin of pine trees. As such it varies from about 20 to 60 million years old, it appears surprisingly light and warm to the touch and readily produces static electricity when rubbed. Amber is most usually similar colour to honey, varying from golden yellow, through rich orange and red to brown, but some can be white, dark brown almost black, blue or green. The are two main varieties 1. Sea Amber which is washed up along certain shores, especially the Baltic Sea. 2.Pit Amber which has been mined in various places e.g. Burma and Mexico.

TURQUOISE -
is an opaque blue to greenish stone, hydrous phosphate of aluminium with Some copper and iron. Different colours of turquoise, varying from sky blue to nearly green occur in untreated turquoise. Brown or gray streaks in turquoise are caused by The "matrix", or "mother stone", from which the gemstone is mined. Native Americans associated the colours of the stone with the blue sky and the green earth. The word turquoise was derived around 16th century from the French word turquie, for Iranian material which was early imported through Turkey. It is believed to attract money success and love. Its power includes protection, healing, courage, friendship and luck.

CRYSTAL -
is a fine, high-quality glass invented in 17th century in England. In order to be considered crystal rather than simple glass, the product must contain at least 10% lead oxide. The lead oxide is attributed to providing the glass with extraordinary qualities of brilliance.

DRUZY- Also spelt as Drusy or Drusie, is a thin layer of sparkling quartz crystals covering the surface of a host stone, also found in a pocket within a stone. One good example of Druzy is the sprinkle of crystals filled inside the cavity of a geode. Probably the most common druzy is quartz, which can be vapor-coated with various materials, such as real gold and platinum, or the metal titanium, which comes in different colours. Natural druzy can be white, or come in a variety of colours: pink, green, black, rare lavender or blue, and rust-red. These and other natural colours arise from the minerals on which the crystals are based. The crystals flash a thousand points of light as the stone is moved. In some drusies, the colour underlies clear crystals, while in others, the crystals themselves are coloured. Titanium Druzy are Druzy that are Titanium coated. This gives them a permanent metal coating in a spectacular play of colours from bottle green to magenda to violet blue. Titanium Druzies are believed to originated in US. Druzy Quartz is said to aid in balancing and increasing energy.
